Of the many legacies the Super Bowl Host Committee hopes to impart to the Circle City in general and the Near Eastside in particular, Pogue's Run Grocer promises to be the most nourishing. The first co-op initiative of the Indy Food Cooperative, Pogue's Run Grocer will celebrate its one-year anniversary from 11 a.m. — 2 p.m. next Saturday, Jan. 7, with samples from several local producers featured on the stores shelves. In addition to offering "one of the best lunch specials in town" through its deli, the co-op has welcomed 500 members in its first year and received approval to accept electronic benefit transfer payments so that low-income shoppers have better access to fresh, local offerings. The grocer's address is 2828 E. 10th St. Store hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday noon to 5 p.m.
